Retail listing for new Samsung G9 monitor claims it can do 2000 nit HDR, a first for gaming monitors

A listing spotted on Chinese retail site Taobao might have given us a look at what an upgraded model of Samsung’s flagship Odyssey G9 monitor. The new model, listed with a Quantum MiniLED panel, should be available in the next few months—and, boy, is this thing going to get bright. Like, the surface of the sun bright. 

The newly listed Odyssey G9 offers a curved 49-inch VA MiniLED panel with a 5120 x 1440 resolution and a lighting fast refresh rate of 240Hz. It supports G-Sync and FreeSync, the same as the 2020 model. The big upgrades come in the form of support for Display HDR 2000, which is Samsung’s branding for a panel that can hit at least 2000 nits brightness. To support the industry-wide HDR10 standard, a display must be able to output 1000 nits, which is already pretty damn bright. The current model G9 hits that threshold. The upcoming G9 is the first PC monitor we know of to hit 2,000 nits.
